As the economy begins to reopen, Livingston County continues to make progress on several highway and construction projects.
The Livingston County Highway Department reports that surface treatments (stone and oil) of various roads around the county began on June 29, 2020. The goal is to complete approximately 30 miles of surface treatments by mid-July 2020 if weather permits.
A box culvert replacement will begin the week of July 13 on Rock Spring Hill Road in the Town of West Sparta. The project is slated to take one to two weeks to complete. During the first week of construction, the road will be closed to all traffic.
The Livingston County Highway Department, Veteran Services, and partners are in the process of preparing the Veterans Monument – located on Gypsy Lane in Mount Morris – for its final surface treatment, which will emulate the American flag. Once the surface treatment is complete, the team will begin the permanent installation of 250 metal poppies that were made by local Veterans and their families. A completion date for the monument is not available at this time as all remaining work is weather dependent.
Sheriff Training Facility
The Sheriff Training Facility project – located along Route 408 – is progressing quickly with continuous work on clearing the site, various roadway installations and the addition of berms for outdoor ranges. It is anticipated that the berms will be completed by the end of July 2020.
Emergency Medical Services Facility
The new Emergency Medical Services (EMS) facility construction is well underway. Currently, crews are in the process of finalizing the exterior of the facility as well as the interior framing. It is anticipated that the project will be completed in September 2020.
Al Lorenz Park
Improvements to the 80-acre Livingston County Al Lorenz Park will continue throughout the summer months. The Central Services team has been busy finalizing two new pavilions nestled in the trees overlooking the ponds and new bridges. In addition, the installation of a boardwalk connecting two trails within the park is nearing completion.
Last summer, the Central Services crew completed several project within the park, including a new playground, basketball court, softball/kickball field, a water fountain in the main pond, and several bridges connecting the trail system.
